Bangkok:  Ratchaburi Electricity Generating Holding PCL (RATCH) announced its interim dividend of THB 1.10 per share.  The dividend is paid from the first 6-month operating performance of 2012 (1 January-30 June 2012). The shareholders will receive the dividend on 14 September  2012. 

Mr. Noppol Milinthanggoon, Chief Executive Officer of RATCH said that the company's Board of Directors meeting dated on 20 August 2012 has resolved the 2012 interim dividend to its shareholders at THB 1.10 per share due to satisfactory result of the company's first half of 2012 operating. The payment to 1,450 million shares has totally amounted at THB 1.595 billion. It is considered the twelve consecutive years since it has commenced operation in 2000.  We strongly believe that the dividend is reasonable and acceptable return to shareholders.

The company schedules the record date of the shareholders for the right to receive the dividend on 4 September 2012 and the closing date of the share registration book on  5 September respectively. The interim dividend payment will be made on 14 September 2012. The dividend will be paid from retained earnings after the 30% corporate income tax base and the dividend receivers are, therefore, able to claim for tax credit.

For the first half of 2012, the company recorded the net profit of THB 4.872 billion, an equivalent of THB 3.36 per share.  As of 30 June 2012, RATCH's total asset valued THB 100.411 billion as a consequence of the company's business growth both domestic and international.
